Launched in 2016, Hamlyn & Co is an interior design studio offering services in both residential and commercial interiors. I love to collaborate with other designers and trades create unique functional livable spaces and have a particular interest in sustainability and finding new building methods and materials with less environmental impact.
My design ethos is simple: strive for authenticity and originality to deliver a personalised and well considered response with a focus on beauty, detail, functionality, quality and sustainability. It's with these ideas that I approach every job - big or small.

“When I starting out on this massive project of building a house, I thought that it was ‘just’ building a house and I didn't fully appreciate what lay ahead. By teaming up with Lesley at Hamlyn and Co with her creative influence, resourcefulness and professional focus, she coached me every step of the way and delivered a dream to me and my family - and in the process exceeded all my expectations. Thank you Lesley - It could not have happened without you. Everywhere I turn in the house, the things I absolutely adore are the design pieces that you introduced me to. You are a master!” - Fiona, Manly
“We engaged Lesley from Hamlyn & Co to help us with a number of different areas in our home including a bathroom, entry and outdoor area. Incorporating existing furniture pieces, she came up with a style and design solutions to meet the needs of our family and lifestyle. As a mum, Lesley understood the importance of storage and designed and produced beautiful custom joinery for our living and entry as well as sourcing additional items from her many suppliers. The whole process was easy and stress free. We’d highly recommend Hamlyn & Co and look forward to working with them on other areas of our home in the future.” - Catherine, Freshwater
“We engaged Lesley from Hamlyn & Co to advise on updating an older house we had recently purchased. The house was built in the fifties and in original condition. Lesley advised on a range of interior design features including paint colours, floor and window covering, kitchen design, lighting and furnishings. She also sourced reputable suppliers and installers at a competive cost and with great results. Lesley was an absolute pleasure to deal with, always professional, helpful and proactive. She was inspirational with her ideas while always mindful of our own tastes and budget. We are thrilled with the result of her work having turned an ugly duckling into a pleasurable living space. We would highly recommend Hamlyn and Co.” - Bernadette, Warriewood
